Christmas was one of my happiest times while working at the Post Office. I felt like an elf delivering Santa's gifts through the mail.
In the picture above, retired postie elves write back to kids who sent letters to Santa Claus: North Pole Canada H0H 0H0. I might volunteer for that position this year.
It would be very difficult to compress my 35 year history with Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers into a few blog entries, so I created a website to detail my experiences. This site can be found at www.cupw.info. There's lots of great songs on these webpages too.I was fortunate to have a good job at Canada Post without any layoffs. It's one of the top employers in Canada and despite the market downturn the pension plan is still well funded.
